"Layne helped me decide the best placement of all the furniture in baby's room and even helped with the decor (an extra bonus I wasn't expecting!) Then she organized my kitchen cabinets and drawers, putting everything in a more purposeful place for efficiency and workability; the next day she moved on to my pantry (hooray!); the following day was for my husband's closet and mine.
As a first-time-mom-to-be, I was very overwhelmed by all that I needed to do to prepare for baby's arrival... Thank you Ms. Placed, I'm not sure how I would have survived postpartum without you!" L.B.
I thought it might be embarrassing because my house was such chaos, but she didn't seem phased at all! In fact, she accomplished in 3 hours what would have taken me days. Before she came, my closets and shelves were hodgepodges of random things (shoes, toilet paper, laundry detergent, cat toys, bug spray, bath towels... you get the idea.) Now, everything has a home in a perfectly labeled box. She installed a couple of acrylic shelves that I had bought before she came, and brought along storage bins, a label maker (!!!!), and a shoe rack that fit my space perfectly.
I know exactly where to find things, and I know exactly where to put them back.
...Alas, there are some things that, if possible, should really be left to professionals." A.B.
Layne Brookshire is the founder of Ms. Placed Professional Organizing in Austin, Texas and Santa Fe, New Mexico. A Texas native, Layne first launched her business as a personal assistant and organizer while living in Santa Barbara, California. For 3 years, her business thrived completely on word-of-mouth referrals from her high-end clientele, as she organized and decluttered their spaces to promote functional, stress-free environments. She quickly realized that people innately desire to live in organized homes, but often lack the time or knowledge to implement the necessary changes in their lives.
The move back home to Austin presented the perfect opportunity for Layne to combine her passion and experience to create a personalized luxury service for busy individuals, bringing order, function, and freedom from anxiety into the lives and homes of her clients. She commits herself to learning her client’s spaces, routines, and needs to create customized solutions to best fit their lifestyle.
Layne’s passion for order stems from her continual experiment to streamline her world by removing both physical and mental obstacles. Her attraction to mindfulness, meditation, and self-growth equips her to work with individuals seeking similar life improvements. Simply put, she loves making life easier. Think peaceful, productive, and clutter-free.
Ya'll. It was kind of life-changing. I'm already thinking about how I'm going to woo her to Dallas when I move back in a year...
I can't tell you how wonderful it is to come home and not have to think about clutter." Alex B
Miss Layne is more then talented! She did such a wonderful job at my house (bedroom, master room, closets, you name it)... I highly recommend her. I will be using her for all my future organizing needs! She is the best organizer I have worked with and from now on the only one I will work with! If you are smart you shouldn't look any further!

Layne was a great help to our family after we moved into our house. Specifically, my husbands office/man cave was overflowing with paperwork and clutter. We hired Layne to come use her skills to organize that space. She worked diligently all day. We are thrilled with her ability to organize and look forward to her helping with more organizational needs around the house. All in all, Layne was great and she has made our lives that much simpler. Shannon B.
I've used Layne for several projects already, and she has helped me declutter and organize so many areas. (closets, attic, pantry, garage... and 3 storage units which we were able to get rid of when she helped us donate and direct the contents). I've even learned some techniques to organize and declutter lots of areas myself! She is super efficient, and delightful to be with while being very gentle with the "treasures" I had trouble parting with. A really good bang for my buck and fun to work with. Gay V.
